I am a little underwhelmed by this season's "Dancing with the Stars" so far. Usually each week there is at least one performance that really knocks my socks off and makes me say "wow, that was awesome". That feeling is lacking a little bit for me this time. There have been some good performances...my favorites so far are Kristi Yamaguchi and Mario, so I am hopeful that the excitement factor will continue to grow as the season goes on.
Who is leaving this week? My guess is it will be Broadway star, Marissa Jaret Winokur. It is a shame because she has such a great personality, and it seems like she should be an awesome competitor in this arena. She's not. She has not lived up to her potential at all, so I think she well be leaving the ballroom tonight.
On a random note...
It's raining, it's pouring at least it's not snowing! Seriously, we have had rain, rain, thunder, lightning, wind, and more rain. Never in my life have I been happier to write this description about our weather. I am just so grateful it isn't snowing, that I'll take the rain.
It is April Fool's Day. As a kid I was terrified of this day. I am NOT AT ALL a fan of practical jokes, getting "Punk'd, or being embarrassed. I am less terrified of it as an adult, but it is still not a favorite day of mine. This lack of excitement over practical jokes, getting "Punk'd", or being embarrassed is not reserved for me alone, I also hate to see it happen to anyone else. I'm really kind of a softie.
